DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Distributes Zemea® in Western Europe


WILMINGTON, Del.—DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products LLC announced new distributor partnerships in Western Europe for its 100-percent, bio-based product, Zemea® propanediol, natural ingredient developed for use in cosmetics and personal care products. The company appointed the IMCD Group as distributor for Zemea in Italy and Dichem Chemicals SA in Greece.

The ingredient is a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols, benefiting formulations via improved moisturization, excellent sensorial and non-skin irritant. Zemea has been recognized by ECOCERT™ and the Natural Products Association (NPA) as an ingredient of natural origin.

“We are very excited to expand our relationships and commitments with IMCD and Dichem," said Denis Burlaud, account executive, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), for DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products.  “They have excellent formulation development support and a professional sales organization in place to help introduce and grow our Zemea sales in the personal care and cleaning products markets. With these two partnerships, Zemea is now available in more than 40 countries worldwide."

Daniela Cassano, personal care marketing manager at IMCD Italia SPA , added: “This partnership with DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products allows IMCD to strengthen its position in the Italian market, where there is a strong demand for natural and certified products. We believe Zemea fits perfectly with the new natural trend, offering a good solution to the Italian customers seeking a natural and safe glycol alternative with remarkable moisturizing and sensorial properties."
